The Luke Project 52 Clinic

May 15, 2017  •  2 Comments

Once a month I volunteer at Luke Clinic Detroit. It is a free prenatal clinic that brings prenatal care to a severely underserved population in an area with an infant mortality rate nearly double the national average. A group of truly amazing people brought this to life to help women and babies.

I can’t draw blood, do ultrasounds, or deliver babies, but I take portraits of the women and children, and bring them back prints the following month.

It is an honor and privilege to meet these women and witness their strength, beauty, and dignity in the face of overwhelming obstacles.
